The urban unit is not synonymous with uniformity. Over and above an urban model, what is proposed is a new lifestyle based on interconnections between transport systems, walkways and public spaces. The result is a generalised community spirit. Developed around a central mall, a diversity of typologies and morphologies associate in accordance with “game rules” proposed to the intervening parties: relationship to the landscape, environmental excellence, attention paid to accesses, unity of the façades, combination of materials and potential upgradability of the project.
